Robert Griffin III

You always give credit where credit is due - to high school coaches, college coaches - but my dad, the foundation that he built with me, is where all of this came from. The speed, the determination, the mindset, just the natural belief that you can do anything you put your mind to, it all comes from my dad.

You got one guy going boom, one guy going whack, and one guy not getting in the endzone.

Robert Griffin III

I was a freshman All-American, and I tore my ACL in the third game. But God has a plan for everything. I had a chance to turn away from Him in that situation or draw closer to Him. I decided to draw closer to Him, and came back stronger from it.

Lionel Messi

In football as in watchmaking, talent and elegance mean nothing without rigour and precision.

Vince Lombardi

Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.

Tony Dorsett

To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.

Lou Holtz

Your talent determines what you can do. Your motivation determines how much you are willing to do. Your attitude determines how well you do it.

Tony Dorsett

I'm a strong believer that you practice like you play, little things make big things happen.

Tim Tebow

I'll give my heart and soul whenever I step on that field and even when I'm on the sidelines. And at the end of the day, that's really all you can ask of someone.

Lewis Grizzard

The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity.

Jerry Rice

I think the thing about that was I was always willing to work; I was not the fastest or biggest player but I was determined to be the best football player I could be on the football field and I think I was able to accomplish that through hard work.

Robert Griffin III

You know, I started this process of being a football player and I'm going to make it to the NFL very soon and I plan on finishing that. And by 'finishing that,' I mean that I'm going to go out and be the best that I can be and put everything forth to make that happen.

Tim Tebow

If you do base your life on how many touchdowns you score, how many championships you win, then when you have a setback, then when you have an injury, you're not playing, or something goes wrong, your self-worth goes down.

~ Tim Tebow ~

Peyton Manning

When you take a year off from football, you come back for all the enjoyable moments. When you're not playing, you miss out on all the highs, but you also miss these disappointments. But I would rather be in the arena to be excited or be disappointed than not have a chance at all. That's football. That's why everybody plays it.

~ Peyton Manning ~

Jerry Rice

Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't

~ Jerry Rice ~

Tom Brady

To me, football is so much about mental toughness, it's digging deep, it's doing whatever you need to do to help a team win and that comes in a lot of shapes and forms.

~ Tom Brady ~

Tim Tebow

On the field I'm trying to play for the glory of God but then also I'm trying to give everything I have and win and compete. And so I think more than just winning or losing, I think He cares about where our hearts are when we're playing.

~ Tim Tebow ~

Robert Griffin III

It's not about talent once you get to the NFL because everyone's got it. It's about being willing to go that extra mile to be the best and that's something that I've always done.

Michael Vick

I stand before you a changed man. Use me as an example of an instrument of change.

Robert Griffin III

Hard work pays off - hard work beats talent any day, but if you're talented and work hard, it's hard to be beat.
